Twenty Questions
« on: September 10, 2016, 11:12:20 pm »

For a while now, I've been meaning to expand on my first article
http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=15709.0
and expand on the sections about building up and staying thin

What I found was that Dominion is full of corner cases. While cards like Mountebank and Ambassador are great most of the time, there are specific situations where it's correct to skip them. How do you identify these situations, well, you need to be asking the right questions

I've compiled a list of twenty questions that covers everything from openings to endgame control. Hopefully you find these useful. Enjoy!

I feel really cool because I 'sniped' the +1 button. I'm on mobile and I hit it without zooming in  8)

I think the last row is actually the most useful set of questions here. If you ask yourself those questions at the end of every game your understanding of the game will drastically increase.

I tried to do that here, but my phone sometimes automatically zooms in when I click on a small thing  :(

Question 20 was supposed to be:

What did you learn about specific card interactions? How does this relate to the community consensus in the form of game logs and discussions?

Except it was too long, so I cut off the second part :)

What Scouts are in your deck? On top of it?

This actually makes Scout an awesome card as it helps you to answer the latter question. We all misplayed Scout, Roadrunner was right all along.

Dominion is full of corner cases.

Corner case is an edge case for an edge case.

I prefer to call them vertex cases.

I think you'd better make one for Transmute now. Scout no longer exists, and Roadrunner needs a new bad card to protect.
